More Black Models Land Major Fashion Campaigns, Word Up! (UPDATE, PHOTOS)

Well looky here ... more beautiful black models are making big moves by fronting major fashion brand campaigns this Spring/Summer 2014 season!

We're already pumped that Prada's got Cindy Bruna in its pack of gals, Givenchy tapped Erykah Badu, Balmain scored Rihanna and Miu Miu snagged Lupita Nyong'o.

Now there's even more brown beauties to add to the list!

First up we've got the world's reigning No. 1 model, Joan Smalls, featured in Fendi's Spring/Summer 2014 ad. Then there's Malaika Firth, who gained fame as Prada's first black model in nearly 20 years, fronting Valentino's new campaign. And last but not least, the new face for Tom Ford Beauty is 21-year-old Nigerian stunner Betty Adewole. Amazing!

UPDATE: Prabal Gurung has just revealed his first-ever advertising campaign, which features the beautiful and age-defying Liya Kebede. Check it out below...
